“The negotiations have reached the design stage for the metro station and bridge. We have a preliminary agreement that the investing party will finance it from the very beginning of the project phase,” he told journalists.
In January, chief architect of Yerevan Arthur Meschian had announced the construction of two new subway stations located in the district of Ajapnyak.
The Yerevan Metro first emerged in March 1981 during the Soviet era, becoming the eighth Soviet Metro system.
Since 1988, there have been no developments to the Metro structure.
